WDF World Cup
Marshall James (born 4 October 1970) is a former professional darts player from Wales, whose only high-profile success in the game so far was being runner-up in the 1997 BDO World Championship, in his debut year at the championships. He is also known for his slow, deliberate throwing style.
His run started with victory over William Burnsfield in the first round 3-1. He then beat Andy Fordham, a future world champion himself, in the second round, again by 3-1. Deciding set wins over American Roger Carter and defending champion Steve Beaton (in a deciding leg, finishing with a 106 checkout after Beaton had missed one dart for the match) sent him into the final, which he lost to Scotland's Les Wallace 6-3.
He was a member of the Welsh World Cup darts winning team in 1997. Wales won the Overall World Cup and Team Event in that year. He also teamed up with Martin Phillips, Sean Palfrey and Ritchie Davies as Wales won the 1998 WDF Europe Cup.
The only significant title that James won in his short career came at the 1997 Welsh Open in his home country having been a finalist in 1991 and quarter-finalist in 1992.
Marshall James currently resides in the town of Llanelli where he owns a betting shop.
